The Football Association is once again teaming up with Stonewall, the leading UK campaigning charity on LGBT rights to support the Rainbow Laces campaign.
The Rainbow Laces campaign is a way for everyone involved in sport to show their support for LGBT equality and inclusivity and Liverpool FA are proud to support the initiative.
There are a number of weekends that leagues, clubs and officials are being encouraged to support the campaign by wearing Rainbow Laces for their games, with the official weekends being 17th and 18th, 24th and 25th November, and 1st and 2nd December.
Stonewall has developed a range of measures to tackle homophobia in sport. The charity has issued a sports toolkit for grassroots and community sport teams to build awareness and understanding of the issues affecting LGBT people, and how they can help ensure all sports offer an inclusive and welcoming atmosphere. Stonewall will work with all of the clubs involved in Rainbow Laces to support their activities.
If your league or club would like to support this campaign or if you’re an official who’d like to get involved, please download and complete the application form and return to Anna Farrell via firstname.lastname@example.org by no later than Friday 19th October 2018.
